Abstract

We report the draft genome sequence of Acinetobacter venetianus strain RAG-1(T), which is able to degrade hydrocarbons and to synthesize a powerful biosurfactant (emulsan) that can be employed for oil removal and as an adjuvant for vaccine delivery. The genome sequence of A. venetianus RAG-1(T) might be useful for bioremediation and/or clinical purposes.
